Chicago Reads


Tom Wolfe’s The Right Stuff is Chicago Public Library’s One Book, One Chicago pick for fall, 2008.  CPL has made some  interesting community read choices; fiction  selections have included a mix of classics (Pride and PrejudiceTo Kill a Mockingbird) and some titles that haven’t been discussed to death, like The Ox-Bow Incident and The Long Goodbye.  They’ve thrown in a few plays as well, but The Right Stuff seems to be their first nonfiction work.
